Pain Matters, the magazine for people living with chronic pain, contains news, features and comment on pain management, research into treatments and personal experiences of living with pain
Inside issue 73...
We are delighted here at Pain Matters HQ to have the neuropathic pain team from University College London Hospital Pain Management Centre guest-editing issue 73. This edition of the magazine takes an in-depth look at all aspects of neuropathic pain, from what it is to how best to manage and treat it, taking in points of view from those living with it to the healthcare professionals trying to help them.
Also in issue 73, writer Robert Ilson describes his half-century struggle to find an answer to his facial pain, including all the treatments – traditional and not – gone by the wayside, before concluding that, sometimes, ‘living with pain can become a way of coping with pain’.
